Science, Business and Innovation

2018-2019

The master program Science, Business & Innovation (SBI) aims to contribute to the persistent and growing need in academia, society and business for scientific and practical insights into valorization of scientific knowledge and findings. A combined understanding of the natural sciences, as well as of business and social sciences is supportive to knowledge and practice development in the field of valorization of (natural) scientific knowledge. 

The master program SBI intently and substantially crosses the boundaries of natural and social sciences, within the context of natural scientific innovation. The learning process is structured and driven by developing scientific research projects in the specific empirical setting. This takes place within one of the following specialization areas: 


1) Energy & Sustainability, with an emphasis on renewable and clean energy development; 
2) Life & Health, emphasizing drug development, molecular diagnostics and innovative medical instrumentation.
